I have to say, although I like Paul 'Wiggy' Rodgers' voice, and think he's doing an OK job on this tour, he seems to have a bit of an attitude problem.

I was watching the video of Brixton yesterday, when I noticed something - as he was coming back onto the stage for one song, rather than walk to the centre of the stage via the HUGE gap to Jamie's right, wiggy seemed to decide that he simply had to go between Jamie and Danny, literally shoving Danny out of his way (poor Danny, he's only little). This bassist abuse must stop!

FREEDOM FOR FOUR STRINGERS!

I'm glad I'm not the only one! It seems that just because he wears leather trousers and has actually got younger over the past 15 years using 'yoga' (ie surgery) he can push us bassists around!
Another thing, while I'm in ranting mode, how come brian gets a whole half of the stage to himself when Jamie, Danny and Spike are crammed into one corner? Jamie got the bottle up at one point in the Brixton gig to move to the front, but I think Rodgers must have threatened to put him in the baggage hold for the ride to Madrid or something, as he moved back pretty quick!
Something must be done!
Maybe I could lead them to revolution at Hyde Park. That would be fun I think!

The three on one side is to do with keping things tight. Danny is working closely with Roger and Jamie to keep the Rhythm going, and Spike is in on the beat and also the Midi and sampled inputs.

Hope that helps

While this is all very true (having been a bassist and rhythm guitarist in bands I know the feeling) You'd think they could shift roger over a bit to give the lads a bit more space! Maybe it's just that brian's wig needs more space than three people! :-)

It's a shame he's going bald from the back, I'd love to see what a curly terry nutkins 'do would look like!

Alright now, say what you want about +PR, his "yoga," and alleged pushiness, but start in on Mr. May's magnificent mane and now you've got a battle on yer hands. Put 'em up and close yer eyes, so's I can kick yer all-o-yer asses like you stole something! Bald patch indeed! I'm sure it was just one shaft of light . . . ;-)

rat bastards! ;-)

PS: Danny's from Brooklyn, I'm sure he'd open up a can of whupass on PR if push comes to shove . . .

Hold the phone! I missed this the first time around. 'Video of Brixton?" "VIDEO OF BRIXTON?" Pray tell, how might one land her hands on such an item?

Not quite. PR has a black belt in Karate and he used to spar with title winning boxers in the 70's.
Also he apparently injured Mick Ralphs when they had a row in the studio and Mick temporarily quit BadCo. So even though PR is a really nice guy, you probably don't want to get up in his face.

They're just talking about some crappy bootleg I assume.

As for Danny vs Paul, no offence to Danny but he's a small, goofy little guy. Great bassist, but definitley a lover not a fighter. Paul is possibly both.

Well this is like Alien vs. Predator.

Sorry, but even a black belt in karate is no match for Brian...IF you mentioned that bald patch...on his website/soapbox. I dare Paul...I pity the fool..really. No joke. Anyone mentions Bri's bald spot on his website...or GOD FORBID, in the press...their ass will be kicked so far by Mr. Bri, they'll be chewing thru their ass, cuz their ass will be way up in their head, into their teeth. LOL!

Upon additional pondering, perhaps I should have said "if push comes to shiv." My money's still on Danny, he's from Brooklyn fer cryin' out loud! He may not have the karate or, as Cosmo Kramer says, "ka ratay" skills, but I bet he can use a shiv with the best of them. Now, on to other important topics: Mighty Mouse vs. The Green Hornet? Who would win? Also, if Pluto's a dog, then what the hell is Goofy? He wears a hat, pants, and a vest, and drives a car! And what's all this talk about youth in Asia? Oh. Never mind.

I'm still certain what you CLEARLY misconstrued as a bald patch was merely one shaft of light that was probably reflecting off of Danny's shiv or maybe his bass . . . capice? Don't know about Brian opening up a can on anyone though, but this girl would pay good money to see it, as THAT just might top last Wednesday night's Manchester gig.

And on an additional note, as much as I like Paul Rodgers, I couldn't help feeling sorry for the woman he pointed at whilst singing "Fat Bottomed Girls" at Sheffield LOL.

Honestly, just as he sang the line "fat bottomed girls..." he pointed at her. I gaped in astonishment and then pissed myself laughing. I don't know if she had a huge arse I could only see the top of her head. There was a lot of sniggering where I was stood, hee hee.

YES- he did that! I forgot all about it, but he DID :)
I almost pissed myslef laughing! :)

BUT honestly, I think he wasn't pointing in particular, IMO it was just general gesture, the stuff you do with your hands when you sing. But it definitely looked like that- and that's why I laughed so much, because it turned out really unconfortable and I'm not sure it was on purpose...

I think if it came to it, I'd put my money on Danny purely for the fact that he spends the whole night holding a three and a half foot long, rather heavy, very useful weapon in the shape of a Fender Precision. And belive me, when you get hit with one of those, you stay hit! GO DANNY GO DANNY GO!
